Founders Workbench actively tracks the growth of crowdfunding as a tool for startups to raise capital. Created by the 2012 JOBS Act, crowdfunding allows private companies to sell equity in small amounts to non-accredited investors. This impacts startups and small businesses that want to raise modest amounts of capital while allowing more investors the chance to participate in this area of the capital markets. This is a big deal for founders!
That’s why we’re helping promote the upcoming Crowdfunding event sponsored by the Boston Security Analysts Society (BSAS) and moderated by FWB Advisory Board member Cort Johnson. The program features three industry-leading practitioners who will explain and explore the development of crowdfunding and its potential implications for a range of industry participants.
FWB member and Goodwin Procter partner Dave Cappillo will serve as one of the panelists, leading a session titled, “The JOBS Act and the Democratization of Crowdfunding” – an overview of equity crowdfunding laws and the impact these changes will bring to the private investing landscape.
